Check out this recent event via BSU podcast:

Dr. Michael Sutcliffe, former municipal manager of Durban, South Africa, delivers his talk, "The geographies of transformation in a democratic South Africa," in the Science and Math Center auditorium.

A leading geographer in South Africa, Dr. Sutcliffe, who was actively involved in the struggle against apartheid, chaired the post-apartheid demarcation project that redefined municipal and provincial regions, substantially changing the politics in his country toward a more democratic system. In 1994, when apartheid ended, he became a member of the provincial KwaZulu-Natal legislature and, in 2007, earned the Anderson Medal award from the Association of American Geographers for his work in applied geography.
